Mebane council recommends commissioners appoint retired businessman David Scott to city’s planning board

Mebane’s city council voted unanimously Monday night to recommend to the county commissioners that the commissioners appoint David Scott as an extraterritorial member of the city’s planning board.

The nine-member board is comprised of six members from within the city limits, all appointed by the city council; two extraterritorial members who live on the Alamance County side of the county line immediately outside the city limits, who are appointed by Alamance County commissioners; and one extraterritorial member immediately outside the city limits on the Orange County side of the city, who is appointed by the Orange County board of commissioners.

Scott, 74, is a long-time Mebane resident, now retired, was an active businessman in the city.

Scott, of 1777 Foxhall Lane near the Hawfields area on the south side of the city, was the only person who applied for the post, and council members unanimously approved recommending him to the commissioners to fill out the term left vacant by the resignation last fall of long-serving ETJ member Larry Teague; the unexpired term lasts until June 30, 2025.
